It is a land of great charm, which has maintained its natural characteristics and its cultural identity intact and unchanged. The Romans christened the island "Minor" to differentiate it from the ‘Major’ (Majorca) in the Balearic Islands. The history of the Port of Mahon is compelling and eventful and its origins are ancient, even prehistoric. With a mild climate throughout the year, Menorca is a lovely sight for those who visit with the soft forms of its landscapes and the architecture of its white houses that go down to the sea. The wild vegetation, in contrast to the transparent waters, creates amazing colourful effects. 50 km long with roughly 80 beaches, each one more charming than the last, with countless coves to explore. The island also offers unexpected surprises: a thousand-year history, great cuisine and eclectic art. That's why you'll love it!
Not to be missed:
The coves of the coast and the natural pools of Macarella and Macarelleta;
Cala Pilar, the shell-shaped red beach, surrounded by woods and pine forests.
Archaeological sites. Among the most famous, that of Trepucò.
